"We would like to have advice from students," said Committee Chairman Dr. Gordon Cleveland. "We are trying our best to get student opinion." The Rights Committee met last Thursday but "very few" students attended. "We had too much competition from other campus activities," Cleveland said. "I believe the students are genuinely interested in this issue." The Committee is preparing a report for the Faculty Council on the kind of participation that students feel they need in the decision making process. 'When the report is completed "sometime next week" the Faculty Council will be asked to accept it," Cleveland said. "We plan to ask them to pass some specific resolutions." The 10-member committee, including four students, has been disappointed in the lack of student response. "I suppose students feel that talking to us won't do any good anyway," Cleveland said. "However, I want to emphasize that we are more than an ordinary committee." He said any resolutions passed by the Faculaty Council would be "the equivalent of faculty legislation." Cleveland said the students his committee had talked to thus far wanted more student participation in the areas of hiring and firing of professors, the composition of the curricula and the degree requirements. "We have found that all departments and administrative agencies haven't set up channels of communication between students, and department heads," he said. I J'One , of ihssolatiQnsL3Y&ma.x ask.;, for.-.is that all departments set up a Regularly meeting advisory committee composed of students and faculty to advise the department heads," he continued.

The letter requested the Audit Board, which checks the use of student fees by campus organizations, have 50 per cent graduate representation "in order to maintain equality and integrity of independence in the touchy area of financial affairs." Baggett's letter said 'since undergraduate appointments are made after spring elections, it would be advisable to have graduate student appointments made now to forestall any misunderstanding."

"We are looking forward to the passage of the undergraduate constitution changes and the bill concerning our $8,500 appropriation at the Student Legislature (SL) meeting Thursday night." The graduate president said he felt that if these bills were not passed this week, spring elections and plans for the 1971-72 budget would get in the way of these present issues. "Our people are meeting with SL legislative committees," Baggett said. "But I have been unable to even talk with Tommy Bello despite numerous attempts to contact him.' Baggett expressed the hope that the legislative branch of SG would be more positive toward the graduate organization than the executive.branch has been.

"On the basis of our referendum and constitution, we feel we can do this. We are proving we can put together a strong government." Baggett said if the undergraduate government does not act on graduate proposals soon, the GPSF would be reticent to back issues which they might otherwise be disposed to back those 'hich don't concern them, but do concern undergraduates. The GPSF president cited broad administrative and faculty support for the federation as the final agreement for the desirability of cooperation between the two student governments. "I don't want to turn to this support, b"t the lack of cooperation by the Undergraduate government may force us take this step," Baggett said. . WflHE o wn by Chris Cobbs Sports Editor For North Carolina State, life in the Atlantic Coast Conference this year has been nasty, brutish and short of expectations. The Wolfpack can't make up a lot of lost ground but it can do miracles for its ego in tonight's game with Carolina, which gets underway at 9 p.m. in Carmichael. Norm Sloan's cagers, ACC champs just a year ago, bring a mediocre 12-12 record to Chapel Hill, but the Pack is one of four teams that has beaten UNC this season. State is only 5-8 against league opposition while the Tar Heels, with a She has been active in the YWCA and YMCA, working on the Campus Issues Committee to improve student-trustee relationships. Miss Carson is a member of Phi Beta Kappa, and. the National Student Association. She . worked with the U.S. Department " of Housing and Urban Development for one summer. Cohen has been a member of the Student Legislature since he was a freshman and has worked for student rights. He is a member of the Student Stores Committee and a former staff member of The Daily Tar Heel. . Cohen is a former press aide to U.S. Senatorial candidate Joe Duffey of Connecticut and worked in Campaign General Motors, an effort to improve consumer protection. Miss Fletcher is president of the Panhellenic Council and secretary of Phi Mu sorority. She is a member of the Chancellor's Advisory Committee on Fraternities and Sororities. She is a member of the Elections Board and was chairman of the board last year. She is also a member of the State Affairs Committee. Miss Fletcher is a former orientation counselor and is a member of the Valkyries and the Hellenas. nor delegate at the State Student Legislature for three years and as chief page in the N.C. House of Representatives during the last sesson. He was formerly a member of the Hinton-James Senate. Flynt said Student Government should retain a lawyer on a full-time consultant basis. "In a recent case involving six University students, the students were tried and convicted without counsel," he said. If elected, Flynt said, "I will take the salary paid to the student body president and use it to supplement the legal aid fund." The presidential candidate said the University should abolish its regulation requiring junior transfer students to live in University housing. "I will firmly support the right of every student, with the exception of first semester freshmen, to choose where he or she wants to live, either on or off campus." Pointing out the lack of a codified constitution, Flynt promised to give each student a copy of the student constitution and budget, so students can see -where and how their money is being spent. I believe the graduate and professional student government should A(GCj HH (Q)W O j MHO) 10-2 ACC mark, can wrap up the regular season championship with a win. The Pack dumped Carolina 82-70 in December and fought the Tar Heels to the last second in losing 65-63 last month. Although Sloan owns little but a colossal headache for his season of coaching, a victory in this regionally televised battle would give him the distinction of besting Carolina two out of three times. Doing that kind of job on a team with a 19-4 record, especially if the team v your fiercest rival, is a powerful remedy for a coach's ails. The Wolfpack, which has beaten Carolina just once in Sloan's tenure, has given UNC a hard time this year with its physical defensive style. Front court operatives Paul Coder, Rick Holdt, Dan Wells and Bob Heuts combine with guards Ed Leftwich, Al Heartley and Bill Benson to form an inconsistent but thoroughly pesky lineup. Coder, the 6-9 junior center, and sophomore backcourt man Benson were the most troublesome when the Pack flattened Carolina in Greensboro. Then Leftwich asserted himself in the tight struggle in Raleigh. The league's highest scoring team with an average of 86.4 points a game, Carolina has had difficulty coming close to that figure against the Wolfpack. The Tar Heels had a dismal shooting night in the fust game with State and encountered a sustained dry spell after opening a 15-point lead in the second. Carolina is coming off a sparkling performance last Saturday at Virginia, however. The Tar Heels made 61 per cent from the floor against the Cavaliers in a 75-74 triumph. If the team will draw inspiration from the fact that it can clinch the ACC title against arch-rival State, it will get still another decided boost from the occasion of five seniors putting in their final home appearances. Center Lee Dedmon, making a strong but what may prove to be a belated bid for all conference recognition, is the lone senior starter. But forward Dave Chadwick and guard Dale Gipple are top flight reserves while forward Don Eggleston and guard Richard Tuttle will also be making their last bows in Carmichael. Adding these factors together, it's entirely possible that Sloan won't leave Chapel Hill feeling any better than when he arrived. That's the way it is, sometimes, in the ACC. oiamce r- Jim Flynt receive a proportionate amount cf the student activities fees," he said. Fiynt said he will work closely with the director of the Carolina Union "to bring in more nationally known groups to Carmichael Auditorium for the late fall, winter and early spring." .
